Estradiol is the main form of estrogen in people assigned female at birth (AFAB) and is produced by the ovaries. It is one of the main sex hormones responsible for ovulation, which is vital to reproductive health and pregnancy in people who can get pregnant. After menopause, levels of estradiol decline significantly. Estradiol also plays a role in the development of bones and female-associated secondary sex characteristics development, as well as the optimal functioning of the brain and reproductive system.
Progesterone helps to maintain the endometrium, or lining of the uterus, and helps to support pregnancy. When an individual enters menopause and ovarian function declines, progesterone production significantly decreases.
